A good start to the year on the European Tour with the first two places.
The European Tour now moves to its desert swing and tees up at the Abu Dhabi Golf Club in the UAE for the Abu Dhabi HSBC Championship. This is the first of two Peter Harradine designed courses hosting the European Tour, the other being the Doha Golf Club which hosts the Qatar Masters which moved to a new date in March last year.
The course weaves through undulating terrain and features palms, ornamental trees, shrubs, seven saltwater lakes, strategically placed bunkers and generous greens. The course opened for play in October 2000, where its iconic clubhouse in the shape of a falcon with outstretched wings underwent a refurbishment for last year’s event.
